Bat ID (UK)

I caught this (poor quality, slowed) video recently and I'm trying to ID the species.

We have few colonies of Pipistrelle bat in the old buildings but haven't seen this before. Long Eared?
Thanks.

Certainly one of long-eared species. Brown is much, much commoner than grey, which is most likely in and around Dorset, as far as I know.

Brown (on location) Long-eared Bat (for certain) - rather good I thought!
